Outer Limits

Wednesday, May 29, 2013

A neo-psychedelic funk/rock band that recalls Parliament Funkadelic and the Mothers of Invention, the Sunderland-based freakazoids of Outer Stylie are on the move this summer. Outer Stylie is the resident act at Snowzee’s, and its members also host regular open mics and an annual, 20-plus-band music festival known as Schackstock (after bassist Tom Schack) that takes place on July 14 this year. In addition, the band is juggling multiple projects, including a people-powered Facebook effort to get onto the Gathering of the Vibes tour (vote by May 31), an indiegogo campaign to fund the recording of a new album (http://igg.me/p/404567 if you wanna toss ’em a few shekels), and a CD release show on June 15 at The Elevens in Northampton.

Fresh off a prime slot at Greenfield’s yearly Strangecreek Campout, Outer Stylie has dates booked throughout the touring season, including festivals in Vermont, New York and Maine. Schack, who described himself in an interview with the Daily Hampshire Gazette as being a fan of Harleys, whiskey, cards, Jimi Hendrix and Bobby Orr, has been a staple of Sunderland’s music revival for several years now and has a reputation for keeping things on the positive side.

Outer Stylie CD Release: June 15, 9 p.m., The Elevens, 140 Pleasant St., Northampton, (413) 586-9155, www.outerstylie.com.

Schackstock: July 14 (all day), Snowzees, 330 Amherst Rd., Sunderland, (413) 665-8788, www.snowzees.com.
